Grad, the more recent
quarter-century story by
Bette Roth.
The volume lists the haz-
zanim as well as the rabbis
and presidents of the
synagogue. In the cantorial
record there is the story of
one of the first cantors here,
Chaim Wasserczucik. Dur-
ing his residence here he
changed his name to Win-
chell. It later became known
that he was the grandfather
of Walter Winchell, the
famous radio broadcaster.
Some members disputed
this relationship, but the
new history of Shaarey
Zedek records the following:
"Maurice Zackheim met
with Walter Winchell in
Florida in the 1920s and
confirmed his grandfather's
service as cantor."
Another very interesting
item details support of the
Red Cross by Rabbi A.M.
Hershman. The reference to
it is linked with the tribute
to Jews who fought in the
wars of this country, with
special mention of Julius
Berman, "a dashing young
man of exceptional ad-
ministrative abilities who
had also served in the
Spanish-American War
and was promoted to a cap-
taincy in recognition of his
outstanding services."'
It then tells about the
formation in February 1918
of the Detroit Patriotic
Fund, with a quota of

RABBI A.M. HERSHMAN

$350,000 earmarked for
Jewish war services. It was
assumed by the Jewish
community. That's when
Dr. Hershman stated:
"We must do even more.
We must give not only as
Jews but also as men and
as Americans. The Red
Cross which is to receive
three out of the seven mil-
lion to be raised is engaged
in work of a humanitarian
and patriotic nature. We
must contribute to the Red
Cross and similar agencies
adequately and generously.
"We must prove our pa-
triotism, demonstrate our
Americanism, our loyalty
to the cause in which our
country is embarked and for
which the gauge of battle
had been thrown down."

President Ronald Reagan
and Israeli Prime Minister
Menahem Begin headed the
list of scores of notables in
this country and Israel who
greeted Rabbi Irwin Groner
on his having been awarded
the honorary degree of Doc-
tor of Divinity at Shaarey
Zedek's 120th anniversary
events Saturday and Sun-
day.
The messages from the
heads of the two nations
were read by toastmaster
David Hermelin at a lunch-
eon attended by 700 after
the Sabbath morning serv-
ices.
Rabbi Wolf Kellman,
executive director of the
Rabbinical Assembly, who
gave the sermon, formally
awarded the doctorate to
the Shaarey Zedek rabbi.
Shaarey Zedek
President Harvey Weis-
berg, Harold Berry and
heads of all the syna-
gogue affiliates joined
in honoring Dr. Groner.
In the course of the pro-
gram William Davidson
joined Walter Field in in-
troducing and urging sup-
port for a synagogue
endowment program.
It was also announced
that a publications fund is
being set up to preserve Dr.
Groner's writings.
The solemn events also
were marked iv an impres-
sive assembly Sunday eve-
ning, with a musical pro-
gram directed by Cantor
Chaim Najman.
The guest speaker, Sen.

Carl Levin, recalled his
family's long association
with the synagogue and his
personal relationship with
Shaarey Zedek, as student,
Bar Mitzva and as associate
who was inspired by the
congregation's rabbis and
-leaders.
The Shaarey Zedek an-
niversary celebration
started a new chapter in
history recording. The his-
torical exhibit organized by
Judith Cantor and an active
cooperating committee at-
tracted statewide interest
and there are plans in the
offing to perpetuate the as-
sembled material, contain-
ing hundreds of manu-
scripts and photographs,
into a continuing display as
means of retaining avail-
able data on the history of
Detroit and Michigan
Jewry.
